In the heart of the city, open to a charming garden, the Musée Rochelais d'Histoire Protestante is devoted to the history of Protestantism in La Rochelle, in Aunis and in Saintonge. It is a must for anyone who really wants to know the soul of a city whose stones keep intact the imprint of a tumultuous past. Particular emphasis is placed on the 16th and 17th centuries, when La Rochelle was the real capital of the Huguenot party. Handwritten letters, documents and engravings evoke the countries of refuge and the period of Protestantism in hiding (18th century).

Open during the summer, from 2:30 pm to 6 pm except on Sundays.
Outside the summer period, visits are possible by appointment by calling 05 46 50 88 03 or by e-mail :
